Uncertainty about Empress Alexandra

November 11, 1895

A dispatch to the Central News in London from Darmstadt denies the report that the Empress Alexandra of Russia,"whose accouchement is now momentarily expected, has undergone a Caesarian operation, and was expected to die," reports the New York Times.

Empress Alexandra's brother, Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse and By Rhine has received "no alarming news" from officials in St. Petersburg.
